Exhaust and CAI

Thinking of changing exhaust and installing a cold air intake soon on my 2013 Camaro ZL1. I cant make up my mind, either Magnaflow cat back or Corsa cat back and either the JacFab intake or Airaid intake. What do you guys think? Also, what are some good tuning shops located in the tri state area that you guys are familiar with?

well I think the rotofab intake shines becasue it is no tune. It also seems to produce as much power as the intakes that require tune.

as far as exhaust sound is kind of a preference.

I preffer corsa to magnaflow hands down. all 304 construction and just sound crazy at WOT has no drone. not crazy about the sound at idle. Magnaflow uses 409 pipe and I just don't like the sound personally and it also has drone.

now with the factory catback being dual mode I think midepipe our headers are a way better place to spend the $$$ though on this praticular car to sart with.

the factory exhaust does not have resonators or anthing. you run a race cats or off road pipe it will sound good.

on the flip side you can get good money out of the factory catback towards on of the other kits.

also take a listen to the stainless works chambered system I presonally think it sounded better than magnaflow or corsa.

Roto-Fab is a must IMO, and as for exhaust, again IMO I would go with a set of Texas Speed 2 inch headers and high flow cats. Pull the fuse and leave the cat back factory.

Rotofab! No tune CAI, keep your warranty intact.. All other CAI's need to be tuned to work properly with ur car. .

Might want to check out New Era Performance here in NY. They make a cold air intake that is making big power gains, and Mike just got featured in a magazine for his outstanding tuning ability. My car is there and will be starting mods real soon.

Airaid makes the highest quality and most "OEM" intakes on the market and that is why we choose them for the majority of our builds. Cannot go wrong!
